Having contemplated their window full of tempting looking baked goods across a savoury and sweet selection, I was thinking a bacon roll would do the job nicely. I ordered one of these which came in a lightly crisp and fresh morning roll, baked on the premises. It was rather good.What caught my eye while I waited at the counter inside was a truly monstrous looking creation – their breakfast pie. In a traditional Scotch pie casing, to the eye it seemed to comprise scrambled eggs, black pudding and a link sausage. Upon closer inspection there was a slice of bacon and some baked beans in there, too. I couldn’t resist.
The friendly counter woman gave it a quick reheat for me. I was soon on my way to sample this extraordinary itemIt proved to be a comprehensively filling and tasty beastie. The black pudding was particularly good. This was far from elegant sophistication, but I was absolutely delighted to discover its existence. I’m sure it has been pleasing local devotees for a long while, but I’m glad to bring it to a wider audience.
So overall, I’d be happy to point you in the direction of McArthur’s as it’s a joyously fun place. I would urge you to give their breakfast pie a try as it’s an enjoyable eat that will make you smile.
